Step 1: Getting the products to work with

spinner

This step is all about telling Zazzle what you want to work with in your promotion session / campaign.

Once you're happy with your choices and the products you get as a result, you can then move on to step 2, doing the promotion using them.

Note that whenever you make a change and hit enter or click outside the box, the results are updated right away.

Your store id is the one used in your Zazzle store url. My store url is www.zazzle.com/hightonridley and so my store id is hightonridley

If you leave Store Id blank, then products will be pulled from the Zazzle marketplace instead.

Working with products in Zazzle collections

When you want to pull from a particular collection, you'll need the collection id. It's the number at the end of the collection url.

For example, here's a collection url www.zazzle.com/collections/bestselling_invitations-119790471480538912

To pull from that collection, use collections/119790471480538912 in the box. That's it, you'll now have the contents of your collection to work with.

Note that with collections, Zazzle ignores some of the choices you could otherwise use. See each choice's help to see if it applies.

Your referral id and associate id are the same thing. One has to be provided, so until you give yours, mine will be used.

This can be a single word or a group of words to make a phrase. What you give is passed to Zazzle for interpretation, so their rules apply as to what you can use here and how it works.

Ignored when pulling from collections.

Bookmarking is how you "save" your settings. All the options that you set using this control panel become encoded in the link given.

When you bookmark the link, those encoded settings are included. This means that when you visit the bookmark later, those settings get used as the initial choices in the form.
